Newer game issues

You may have seen my thread in the KS board about running it on Linux, and it turns out most never games don't either. I just get a black screen but I can hear sounds. I don't know what to do about it.

Please note, that these games are made for windows, and since the compiler (MMF2) is normally used to only make Windows games (due to extensions these games use, its nearly impossible to have native support for other than windows platforms. It can very well be an issue with shaders not being supported properly.
